Chavez 'ready to defend Bolivia'

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has vowed to defend Bolivia's government
if there is an attempt to overthrow President Evo Morales.

Mr Chavez said: "Venezuela will not keep its arms crossed if the Bolivian
government and people are attacked from outside or within."

Mr Chavez has recently accused Washington of plotting to topple his close
ally in Bolivia.

Officials in Washington have denied such allegations.

8. Read.
"Mr Chavez said: "Venezuela will not keep its arms crossed if the Bolivian
government and people are attacked from outside or within."

Mr Chavez has recently accused Washington of plotting to topple his close
ally in Bolivia."

The implication being that the U.S. will try to topple Morales.

Are you following this? Okay.

Well... bush"clusterfuck" co* didn't do such a great job trying to topple Chavez, did he? And bush"clusterfuck" co* didn't do such a great job bringing freedom to Iraq, did he? bush"clusterfuck" co* screwed up in Afghanustan and NK.

Are you following this? Okay.

Just a guess on my part, but I believe President Chavez's chances of thwarting any devious plans by bush"clusterfuck" co* to topple Morales are quite good if it comes to that.

Clear?

7. Uh, Chavez and Morales are democratically elected leaders.
Maybe you didn't vote for them, but a majority of their countrymen did. So yeah, viva Chavez.

10. Ahmadinejad isn't, really.
He won an election, but one that was anything but free or fair.
